September 23 – Updates

September 23, 2016

An updated Results sheet has been posted in ‘Results ’16’:

This Week:

Reserve – the Reserve team had a tough week – with a significantly depleted team due to a combination of illness and injury –

  • On Monday (9/19) the girls came out on the low end of a 2-1 score vs. Mt. Royal Academy. In the words on Coach Nichols, “The 14 reserve girls that were not hurt and/or sick played a very strong game today. We had multiple people playing in unfamiliar positions and doing an amazing job of it. Despite several very good opportunities in the second half, we weren’t able to tie the game up by the end. We lost 2-1.”
  • On Wednesday (9/21) the girls had a tough time with Fall Mt. in a 4-0 loss. According to Coach Nichols, “As expected, we had a tough game today.  With 6 out of our 8 defensive players out hurt and/or sick (7 by the end of the game), plus another 3 offensive players out sick or hurt, we had to make several adjustments as far as where players played.  Two of our fasted offensive players did a fantastic job for the 2nd game in a row playing as the center defenders.  Their speed made up for their lack of experience in those positions.  We worked in two new goalies and all the healthy girls played more than 70 minutes of the game.  It was disappointing to lose 4-0, but the girls made adjustments in our formation in the middle of the first half that changed the flow of the game.  Fall Mt. only out scored us 1-0 in the second half even though we were very tired.”
  • The Reserves are scheduled for an away game today (Fri 9/23) at Sharon Academy – game time is 4:30pm.

Varsity

  • Varsity had a good outing in an away contest at Trinity on Tuesday (9/20) – where they came out with a 5-0 win.

Jr. Varsity

  • Injuries are also starting to have an impact on the JVs, but they nevertheless had a strong road win over Trinity on Tuesday (9/20). The final was 7-0.
  • Jr. Varsity is on the road today vs. John Stark. Game time is 4:30pm at John Stark Regional High School in Weare, NH.
